Just returned from a wonderful holiday at the Kallisto resort. All the favourable comments you will read on "Trip Advisor" are fully justified.
The apartments are set in a steep, hillside location, with wonderful Southerly views over the beautiful Pelekas beach. Surrounded by well kept gardens, there was an array of flowers cascading over our balcony. There was a generous terrace, ideal for relaxing and simply soaking up the sun and the view.
The apartment was clean and well appointed with a modern shower room and a power shower that was much more efficient than anything we have previously encountered in Greece!
When we arrived, albeit somewhat late, we were greeted by the wonderful "Effie" who was very kind and helpful. Incidentally her sister works at the "Pink Panther" taverna up the hill in Pelekas where you can enjoy fantastic pizzas, baked in a traditional wood oven, whilst looking out at the amazing view.
The apartment benefited from a good sized shared swimming pool, although we were the only ones that used it. There was a nice covered area to escape the midday sun, write a post card or enjoy a meal. There were also cooking facilities and I understand that by arrangement food can be prepared for you for a small fee, although we did not try out this option.
Try the "Bella Vista" snack bar (a 15 minute walk) for cocktails and delicious food with incredible views of the sunset.
The beach was clean, sandy and ideal for swimming and snorkelling.
The approach road to Kallisto is extremely steep and not for the faint hearted, I would suggest that this resort is unsuitable for anyone who has mobility problems. I would also advise avoiding the most basic hire car option as there is a good chance that the tyres/gearbox will not take the strain!
One final point, the owner of the Kallisto apartments, Kleomenis could not have been more helpful and accommodating. A really excellent stay!
